Abstract

This research is in the field of CFD modelling of heat engines, particularly the advanced CFD methodologies for the performance characterization of solar Stirling Engines with complex geometrical topologies. The research aims to investigate whether these methods can provide a more inclusive picture of the engine performance and how this information can be used for the design improvement of Stirling engines and the investigation of more complex engine topologies.
